NEVER SAY NEVER

They had all said never in a million years would they succumb to the normality of adulthood or the humdrum of a midlife crisis.
.
Not one of them would hail the forties as the new twenties and everyone would grow old gracefully. .
.
Well fuck that narrative a 38 year old squealed into the night sky.
.
Her eyes dripping with salty tears, her body battered by memories of better times.

.
The hint of forty wafted past, a sudden dread as life moves fast.

.

Rebuking the never ever and the youthful disdain.
.
She hollers “Roll of forty let’s be twenty again!”
.
Never say never !

I WILL NOT BE ERASED: Featuring a collection of writers from the award winning @galdemzine. The book is a collection of detailed explorations into identity, family and sexuality. Covering a broad scope of different experiences, I WILL NOT BE ERASED is about growing up as people of colour and the struggles faced in their individual journeys. There were many moments in this book when I considered my own identity and the adaptations I myself made to fit into a particular narrative. Even more, the experiences with subtle discrimination and stereotypical selections. However, what I learnt is that was there is NOTHING wrong with being yourself. . #imeverywoman #itsallinme #sayitloud #imblackandimproud . © W O R D B E R R Y . . .
